ECB statement on Stokes and Hales

Stokes and Hales are unavailable for the final ODI against West Indies at the Ageas Bowl

Ben Stokes and Alex Hales will not be considered for selection for England international matches until further notice.

Each remains on full pay pending further ECB investigation and the ongoing Police investigation into an incident in Bristol in the early hours of Monday 25 September.

Andrew Strauss, Director of England Cricket, will today refer the internal disciplinary procedure for these two players to the Cricket Discipline Commission, chaired by Tim O’Gorman.

These decisions, fully supported by ECB Chairman Colin Graves, were made following the release of footage viewed by ECB for the first time on Wednesday night.

Dawid Malan has been called into the squad for the final ODI.
